Sodra Die Mens group was nearing the hill. The cyber assassin signaled the Shadow Company man to take point. He knew with the black armored soldier's enhanced sense of smell would detect any sort of trouble in the way. His HK G-56 sweeping in a 180 degree motion as he slowly creeps uphill. He then vanishes into the black forest, keeping a watchful eye on his squad. "Switch to your side arm, no one that rifle is going to help in these kind of close quarters." Sodra Die Mens says to John the sniper. Slinging his rifle on his back he pulls out his piece.
"So what are we facing here?" Nathan asks with his exo machine gun covering the left flank. "Mutants with wings." replies quietly. "Oh shit! It'll be just like that time in South America! Remember Nathan? Those weird ass human fly gangsters?" Michael says with enthusiasm. "Ooohh you know I do man! Haha, switching to shotgun mode, scatter pellets." the sound of their exo suit fire arms make shift noise as their shotguns come out of their wrist mounts.
The formation felt strong. John was in the back, covering their rear. The two exosuit troopers, Nathan and Michael were scanning the tree line on both sides. While Sodra Die Mens watches the front, his new hand cannon at the ready. But where was the Shadow Company fellow? No one really knew, his radio was off.
"Sodra. This is your shadow. I'm at the church, I don't see anyone their. I'm still in the treeline. I'm staying put, the field is way too open to go any further without back up. I'll radio back if I see anything." He says on the walkies, only to click off before they could respond to him.
The group was shocked by how fast the shady man was already at the cathedral. "Guy gives me the creeps." John says to himself. Within two minutes the team makes it to the the treeline of the church.
Ordering the group,"Tell the kid to get his rifle ready. I believe we have two hostiles on the roof. I can't get a good view on their weapons and armor, but I can see at least two." This time the radio stays on. John quickly lays down under a low branch and brings his MAR 20 out. Flipping the scope protector up he scans the roof top. He didn't see anyone yet.
The rest of the group was behind thick trees, they were ready to attack. John was a still facing the cathedral, he was moderately covered. The Shadow Company man was somewhere. Clearly in a spot where he has a good view of the church, but wasn't seen.
